TUESDAY BLUES!! Elliott Smith - Miss Misery

Elliott Smith - Miss Misery
After all the feel good factor of the Olympics it's time to come down with a bump.

Elliott Smith was an american singer / songwriter who tragically died on October 23rd 2003.  His most commercial breakthrough was this track, which featured on the Good Will Hunting soundtrack, for which it was nominated for a Academy Award (he lost out to Celine Dion).  It was a surreal performance, for which he acknowledged, as he seemed like a lost little boy in the massive theatre.

He would've been 43 last week, and one of his early labels, (Kill Rock Stars) are releasing a number of unreleased versions of his songs.  If you never have given him a go, get the An Introduction to... album, it will make you glad you did.
